country, what he thought was right, the conservative cause. steve and i made this film with him. he passed away suddenly, tragically, just after we finished principal photography. he's a main part of this movie. we're so proud of being able to bring this out and remember andrew when we watch it. >> greta: steve, what did you learn from this movie? i know it's a documentary, you went in to study occupy wall street. what did you learn? the one thing i learned, these guys know what they're doing. if you think how they changed the conversation. greta, we start the film in a prologue in the summer of 2011 with the national debate that you just talked about in the previous block about cutting spending, increasing debt for the first time. the occupy movement started six weeks later in zuccotti park, and essentially changed the conversation. we don't talk about the guests . we don't talk about the national debt. we haven't had a meaningful conversation since 2011. one of the reasons was the occupy movement. they're changed the debate to fairness, equality, 1% versus the 99%. i found they're

to be a distinguish television shot. >> consultant steve murphy worked with dukakis. >> the answer came back, we've arranged for you to ride in a tank, they won't let you ride in a tank without a helmet because it's unsafe. he relented. he should have stuck with his instincts. >> that moment turned into this commercial. >> now he wants to be our commander in chief. america can't afford that risk. >> do ads like that really work? the consultants think they do. >> three, four, five -- >> they still rave about this ad. it ran only once, but was talked about so much on tv, they say it changed all campaigns. it was the first negative ad to use fear and raw emotion. >> 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

panel. steve, first to you. number one, are the polls slanted in number two, the second part of the question, does that suppress the vote? >> look, i think if you're just looking at "the new york times"/cbs poll, you believe everything you see in the polling of florida and ohio today, the results that came out today, yes, i think they oversampled democrats. i don't think there's any question about it. it would mean a record turnout in those states to produce the kinds of results we saw. now that doesn't mean these polls are useless. if there's consistent oversampling inside a poll, like the cbs/"new york times" poll has been, plus eight or nine for democrats, so you can see trends inside of that, even if they're oversampling. so they're not useless, but if that's all they're looking at they don't you good sense of where the race us right now. >> greta: michael? >> well, greta, pollsters want to get it right. the idea that there's a conspiracy that they're trying to root for one side, that they're trying to depresses one side's turnout, to me it doesn't make sense. i find it impossib
